Though the New York Comic Con might be over, there is still a lot of geeky awesome to entertain us in terms of the comic series announcements and season premieres of shows like the previously discussed “Batwoman” and the fifth season of “Supergirl” which premieres tonight on The CW Network. I’ve snagged the season poster along with a recap of the fourth and much of the main and guest cast for your consumption. Let’s go.
Season 4 Recap: In the fourth season, Kara deals with a new wave of anti-extraterrestrial prejudice secretly instigated by Lex Luthor from prison, forcing her to fight for the civil and political rights of aliens. Ben Lockwood, a former college professor who suffered a series of personal tragedies at the hands of extraterrestrials, forms a human-first group called the Children of Liberty to end all aliens. Meanwhile, in the nation of Kasnia, a clone of Kara dubbed “Red Daughter” is trained by its military to fight Supergirl at Lex’s request. Kara and Alex rival with the DEO’s new addition, Col. Lauren Haley, who was sent to monitor the DEO’s progress under Alex’s direction. Col. Haley and the President try to force Supergirl to reveal her identity, and clash with her and Alex when she refuses.

The Fox Network has offered up some interesting musical renditions over the last few years with “The Wiz” and “Grease” being among the latest ones and while I didn’t see “Wiz” I did catch a fair chunk of “Grease” which was really done well. It’s one of my favorite Broadway shows to be honest and they did this one right. That being said I had to admit some serious surprise when it was revealed that the iconic Underground B Science Fiction Horror film “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” was next on their list. I’ve embedded the recently revealed trailer for you below. Check it out.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show (also known as The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event) is an upcoming television film. It is a “reimagining” of the 1975 film of the same name, directed by Kenny Ortega and using the original script written by Richard O’Brien and Jim Sharman. The film will star Laverne Cox, and will be broadcast on the Fox network around Halloween, 2016.
Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter
Victoria Justice as Janet Weiss
Ryan McCartan as Brad Majors
Reeve Carney as Riff-Raff
Christina Milian as Magenta
Annaleigh Ashford as Columbia
Staz Nair as Rocky
Adam Lambert as Eddie
Ben Vereen as Dr. Everett von Scott
Tim Curry as the Criminologist
PiercingMetal Thoughts: This is not one of the typical television items that I would include here but the “RHPS” is something very near and dear to me in terms of just how much fun it was as a film. I am speaking of course of both seeing it on the big screen and being part of that wild live audience that carries on with absolute madness while it plays. Okay so here is a confession, while I never dressed up for the film, on the few times I got to see it I did dance around and brought some of the props like confetti and rice or a water gun and such. It was weird wild stuff. Personally speaking I just don’t feel right about any sort of remake or re-imagining that is now happening and this is nothing against who is playing who and what they are all about. To me this is timeless underground cinema that should be left alone. Call me old fashioned but some things are sacred to me in this media realm we live in but I guess after forty years of being in existence I should have expected a redo to come around sometime. What do you readers think about the whole thing and the trailer? Let me know in the comments section below.
